Skunk2 TB and square top manifold sold.
Sway bars have sold

I'm trying a new format, uploading an image of a spreadsheet to make things more organized. Please let me know what you think or if it sucks on your monitor

Sad to see it go, but glad I was able to snag a few things so I could get my build finished up already.

Yea, there has been some protest while taking parts off. It's like she's fighting it. But couples therapy isn't going to help this case

Folks, I'm probably going to have to destroy the rear lower control arms to extract the bolt and free the xidas. I'll likely be splitting the respective pairs up. Prices to be adjusted later tonight. Please refer to first post for most up to date availability and pricing day by day

There have been some inquiries about the subframe. I ha e it listed with damage because a particular area in DC was unforgiving. I was amazed and relieved the pan was fine. Anyway, here's a photo and I tried to price it accordingly. No cracks or tears. Just some dings

So sad but had some friends drop by and we did some damage. Brought all the stuff inside and I'll start packaging the first wave of shipments. Hopefully pull the motor in the next two weeks with the transmission. I have to figure out how to chop up those v8 roadster arms to get the Xidas free.


I appreciate everyone's patience. Normally it's just a one person operation and it's been a pretty steep learning curve to keep on top of messages and tracking who is interested in what. I'm sorry if any of you have fallen out due to my poor recollection.











Anyone need studded snow tires?

I imagine you could get a lot of attention with the studded tires at a drag strip, lol.

Damn. Sorry to see it but I know you been feeling this for a while. Just popped in to say good luck with the sale - just make sure you stick around after this one's gone.

This is one of my favorite cars on this forum, which means one of the best cars on the interwebs. Marie Kondo has changed a lot of lives.

Yea it was hard to initiate, but I'm actually feeling better knowing that there's a little piece of Smurfette's soul living it up in other peoples cars. I love this community and the technical curioisty that a lot of folks on this forum possess. I still feel like in due time, I'll be building an NB K-swap similar to what's currently for sale on your side of the country. That same part of me is excited about starting over with lessons learned and 20/20 hindsight. It just won't be this year, maybe the next. I'm relatively sure I can build a fast car, but I want to learn how to be a better driver, and in a safer vehicle than the Smurf...probably something stock for a while with the appropriate safety equipment. Just a priority shift, and trying to be more responsible. I'll let Mat Russell and others continue the science project pushing the boundaries. My car never had the chance to prove it's actual potential for one reason or another, but I've met mine, and it scares me each time.

And let's remember how she's been in her prime. Better than ending in a catastrophic demise with broken parts

Meh. Romanticize it all you want, it was still slower than a dually coming up The Dragon.

It was terrifying being ghosted by that truck. You could hear it, couldn't see it, then it was next to you in opposing lane.
